This, however, is not possible.
p.s. moved some time ago, but born and raised in NY metro. Delivered papers as a kid and couldn't stay up to watch the games. I read the box scores every day before I left on my route.
I grew up in NY or Canarsie to be exact when the sand dunes were there and remember riding our bikes along the Belt Parkway... my dad had a medical practice there before we moved to Morristown, NJ. We used to sail our dinghies in Jamaica Bay... it was great and my dad used to take us up the Hudson with his fishing friends so I know the area as a child/young man would at the time... didn't change much in the way of life I imagine compared to what it is now, I grew up with many Jewish, Italian, and Spanish families that lived there so the culture/food was as expected growing up in the big city but small town Canarsie. Prospect Park was our park of choice when the entire family did their holiday hangouts.
I'll not say a word regarding the Yankees and the Mariners and just say the better team won last year!
